A lot of things are faster to just redraw than to scan. And you can scan for free with a number of options out there. Something dimensional like a seed plate is easier/better/faster to draw from scratch. I made some with blanks last fall for someone. Less than 2hrs in F360 and both pieces were ready to print.
Looks nice! Did you print using PLA filament or something more exotic? 100% infill? How did they perform / wear?
I thought PETG might have better potential than PLA for functional parts, but the small test samples I tried on my printer weren't impressive at all. Perhaps partly due to temperature limitations of my current setup... I tried iterating a few different printing parameters and samples all seemed similarly mediocre.
